Thank you Stuart Magazine for spotlighting our Phoenix Scholarship awards reception, hosted by our friends at Audi Stuart. We were thrilled to welcome these deserving young people into our Foundation Family and honored by the community's support.
Over 100 guests, including Rep. Brian Mast and Martin County Sheriff William Snyder, attended the Oct. 10 reception at Audi Stuart when we announced our 2020 Phoenix Scholarship recipients. Welcome to the Foundation Family! We are honored to be part of your futures and look forward to watching your successes. These scholarships are possible through the generous support of our donors. With your help, we’re turning darkness to light and providing hope and support to young people in recovery on the Treasure Coast and in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

The Garwoods shared their story and how they are honoring Mark's life and legacy by providing scholarships to young people in recovery to help them continue their educations. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing your story and how the Mark Garwood Foundation is providing strength and hope to the recovery community on the Treasure Coast and in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
